So this week has come round incredibly quickly. I have 500 words of this essay left to write until I hit 5000,and then I plan to rewrite the whole thing because it’s the worst essay I have ever written ever in my life ever.
So to cheer myself up, I went on Amazon. This was a Bad Idea because I’m trying not to spend money that I don’t have, however, I found a CD I’m after in the “things you might like” box for £2.84! AND available on Amazon Prime, which means free next day shipping! Great! Immediate purchase! Realising it was dispatched to my home address instead of uni so I have to wait a week anyway! Wooooo!
In case you’re wondering, the CD was by an incredible band called San Cisco. I discovered them on an 8tracks playlist, and fell in love with their song Fred Astaire. It’s quite a summery song, but very much a feel-good one too.
Anyway, this post is also inspired by my brother moaning at me for not having a concise Christmas list.
Yes, I , the ever organised, do not have one concise Christmas list. I have 1 massive list divided into 4 categories. Everything on there is something I want; I just would prefer to be surprised by getting something from a wide range of items than narrowing the list down and knowing what I’m going to get.
Also I get kind of anxious because I have an irrational fear that the items which don’t make it onto the Ultimate List will have serious FOMO and I can’t do that to inanimate objects that I don’t own.
I know, I’m a mess.
So, what are these lists?
- Media: Books, CDs and DVDs that I wish to own.
- House Warming: Things like kitchen appliances and cushions for my future house/right now because I will marry whoever buys me a kitchenaid stand mixer (available here).
Or whoever voices a wish to hug me as I really am that needy and desperate right now.
- Languages/Translation: contains things like a French thesaurus, and a book called Ella Minnow Pea. (Available here)
- Generic Wants: other things like makeup or stationary. Some of these are just for my own purposes like “I will buy this next paycheck”. I mean, look at this mug (available here)!
How do you sort out your list? What’s on it? Maybe you’ll be inspired!
Hope everyone’s ok out there!
